What Makes Stainless Steel Stainless?

What Is Stainless Steel and Why Is it Stainless?

In addition to iron, carbon, and chromium, modern stainless steel may also contain other elements, such as nickel, niobium, molybdenum, and titanium.

Stainless steel

In metallurgy, stainless steel, also known as inox steel or inox from French " inoxydable", is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass. Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does. However, it is not fully stain-proof in low-oxygen, high- salinity, or poor air-circulation environments.
